- "You will be in charge of that, Moff Tarkin. Or should I say Grand Moff Tarkin."
"The Empire's first."
- ―Emperor Palpatine and Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin
Grand Moff was a title in the hierarchy of Sheev Palpatine's Galactic Empire. Wilhuff Tarkin, who was put in charge of the construction of the Death Star shortly after the Empire was formed, bore the title of Grand Moff. Grand Moffs were governors of "priority sectors." As a symbol of their charge, Grand Moffs bore 2 rectangular plates fitted with twelve raised colored squares—a row of six blue squares over a row of three red and three yellow ones. After the death of Emperor Palpatine and the destruction of the second Death Star, Moff Valco Pandion seized the title of Grand Moff for himself. By the time of the Battle of Jakku, Randd had become Grand Moff.
